WIAW: Dinner for the Win

Hi Friends-

I wasn’t planning on doing a WIAW post today but I’ve been eating some pretty good stuff lately so  I just had to share.

So here’s what I got for ya!

I’ve been eating fruit, fruit and more fruit!
I baked some yeast bread using greek yogurt- recipe coming soon!
I had my first savory crepe-
goat cheese, spinach and balsamic peppers!
I’ve been on en English Muffin kick.
And as always, I love my yogurt and granola bowls.

Chobani made my week by sending me a case of yogurt.
I immediately made more of these
except this time I just mixed in chocolate chips…
And I skipped the dipping in chocolate.

Shrimp & Goat Cheese tacos are quickly becoming one of my favorite dinners.
We tried grilling them this week…
Along with some potatoes, asparagus  & veggie kabobs.

Last night I reaaaaaaaallly didn’t feel like cooking.
Luckily we keep a lot of healthy food on hand,
so I was able to throw together a healthy dinner without much effort.
We grilled some corn and asparagus.
I cooked a sweet potato most of the way in the microwave,
And finished it off on the grill for some great flavor.
I threw some frozen naan on the grill to enjoy with hummus.
And I sauteed some black beans, peppers & onions to top the sweet potato with.
Afterwards I had some Dessert Hummus :)

It pays to keep healthy food in your house, my friends!

Oh, and for lunch on Monday?

Whole Wheat Banana Crunch Pancakes! Recipe tomorrow!

  33. I love the WIAW idea! Wherever did you get the idea? I’m new to leangreen (discovered it because a foodblog I follow posted info about foodie penpals – I was a tad too late to get on the list for June but expect to participate in July!), so I don’t know if idea is original to you or if you were inspired by another blog. I’m thinking I might try a version of it on Kitchen Cauldron, but perhaps making it a monthly thing! Incidentally, you mention Chobani yogurt. I’m not a fan of regular yogurts but have learned to love Greek yogurt for recipes and atop thick soups. In which case, I only buy Chobani when the market is out of Fage (pronounced fa-yeh), which is even thicker (not a bit of liquid when first opened). And it’s produced in Johnstown, NY, a little over an hour away from where I live! If you haven’t tried it (& can find it where you’re located), check it out! I usually get the 2% version.

    • hi! wiaw was not my idea. Jenn started it and tons of people participate. you can find all the details here: http://www.peasandcrayons.com/p/wiaw.html
      i am the one that started foodie penpals and we’d love to have you participate in july. just fill out the participation form if you haven’t already! i have heard of fage and i do buy that occasionally as well!
